Fat sac question x1, 205v, x2, xstar
Im about to pull my hard tanks for 750 sacs in my rear lockers in my x1. Before i do i was curious if there was still an overflow option like the hard tanks have? in other words, when the bags are full do they spit the water back out like the hard tanks did, or will i have to watch them so the bag doesnt explode?

Just hook up the overflow hose that goes out the side into the sac, the hose should still be there when you pull the tanks.

Im a total rookie at this, i didnt even know that there was an overflow hose. Will it hook up to one of the air vent holes in the bag or just the main hole that the tsunami pump screws into?

you need to get the proper fittings for that from fly high or from there, yes. it will hook straight in to the bags. the black hose that comes out the top of the tank is the vent hose (aka overflow)

Okay, it sounds like im set then. I got those in last week, thanks. Any idea if a non handyman is capable of pulling this off? I assume its just unscrewing the hard tanks and putting the bags in their place?

yes its a very easy job, unscrew tanks and place in sacks, are you connecting them to the factory ballast pumps?

Take care when installing the sacs. You want to address any sharp or abrasive areas that may damage the sacs over time, (screws, fiberglass edges, hose clamps) that sort of thing.

Yes just the factory pump. Do the bags drain well like the hard tanks do? Anything else that i should know before starting? do i need to beef up the locker divider between engine somehow?

nah itll be fine. youll have to get all the water out by picking up the bag and draining it over the side.
